We stumbled upon Hu Hot in our travels in the western US, had a fun experience as well as good food! Having returned many times in our travels this is my observation
The concept is simple, choose and gather exactly what you want on your plate, and whatever sauces, if any you'd like, there are a ton of excellent choices and if you don't see something you might want, ask for it, then bring your selections to the grill dome and watch the chef prepare your food right in front of you!
The food is as good as any Asian style restaurant and with the ability to totally construct your meal, any shortcomings pretty much lie with your selections.
We found Hu Hot to be consistent, very reasonably priced and an enjoyable informal dining spot!
If you want stuffy, white tablecloth gourmet, this is not your place, but for a good meal and a somewhat fun and different dining experience Hu Hot is a good choice
